    Meghan McCain got candid about her time on The View during a recent podcast interview. “The View is tricky because it’s kind of like having an ex-boyfriend that everyone knows you broke up with. And everyone — people are just curious, cuz it’s like such an iconic show and I get it,” McCain said while seaking with TV producer Carlos King on his podcast Reality with The King. McCain went on to say it that while it was a “privilege to be on for four years,” she has “moved on” from The View.  “I don’t watch the show at all. It doesn’t really enter my lexicon,” she said. “I don’t watch anymore and it’s too weird. It would be too weird to watch, but, um, I don’t miss it. And I think it’s because I had such a hard time. My last season, it was a really rough time in my life.” She then began to discuss the one friendship with her former co-host that’s flourished even after her exit from the hit daytime talk show: “[Sunny Houstin] is one of...

    Meghan McCain tore in Tucker Carlson on Monday night after the top-rated cable news host insulted Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) by calling him “eye-patch McCain.” During a discussion on his show, Carlson ripped into Crenshaw for arguing on behalf of $40 billion in aid to Ukraine to help fight of the brutal Russian invasion that began almost three months ago. “Why is Congress so focused on Ukraine but you can’t find baby formula?” Carlson asked. “According to congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas, asking questions like that, or really any questions at all, thinking you are a citizen, makes you ‘pro-Russia,’” he added before showing a supercut of Crenshaw defending the aid package on television. “You know, the more I think about it, it takes a lot of gall for eyepatch McCain to attack moms who are worried about baby formula as pro-Russia,” Carlson added, despite offering now evidence Crenshaw ever attacked moms. The comment quickly raised eyebrows and went viral on social media. “Tucker Carlson derisively refers to @DanCrenshawTX, who lost his eye while serving our country as a...
    Steve Schmidt, cofounder of the disgraced Lincoln Project and former presidential campaign manager for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), admitted Friday that he did not actually vote for McCain in the 2008 election, won by Barack Obama. Politico reported Friday: He also told us something he’s never revealed before: his disillusionment with McCain was so deep by the end of the 2008 campaign that he didn’t think McCain should be in the White House. “The only conceivable conclusion that you could get to after watching his conduct in this campaign was that he’s completely unfit to be president,” Schmidt told us. “Truth is, I didn’t vote for him either.” He left the presidential line on his 2008 ballot blank. Schmidt was tapped by McCain after the “maverick” Republican Senator lost a host of key staffers in mid-2007, and refused to give up. McCain’s stance in favor of the “surge” in the Iraq War contrasted sharply with the view of most other candidates. But over time, as it became clear that the surge had worked, both in stabilizing Iraq and reducing American...
    The bare-chested, Viking-hat-wearing lunatic who stormed the Capitol, barged through the halls of Congress and stood on the rostrum on the House floor has become an avatar for all that is bad, ugly, and dangerous about the far-right. This Idiot Shaman represents the insurrectionists, radicals, QAnon supporters and extremists who would rather watch the country burn than make any attempt whatsoever to heal the hardline political divisions in this country. His is also the convenient face for all those lazy people in the mainstream media, who want to blanket stereotype everyone on the right, anyone who doesn't vote for Democrats, is pro-life, owns guns, lives in the middle of the country, doesn’t watch CNN or works in a job that leaves them sore at the end of the day. To some in the media, all conservatives are the moral equivalent of the Viking-helmet-insurrectionist. This blanket stereotyping only adds to the radicalization of the ‘deplorables,’ who already know how much the powers that be hate them. But never -- and I mean absolutely never -- in my wildest dreams did I...
    Meghan McCain said the Biden administration’s new disinformation board should “petrify” Americans, and that it reminds her of a 2005 dystopian political film. The Department of Homeland Security announced a Disinformation Governance Board Thursday. The board will work to counter information it deems inaccurate. “The spread of disinformation can affect border security, Americans’ safety during disasters, and public trust in our democratic institutions,” DHS told the Associated Press. Thus far, news of the board has not been warmly received by conservatives. Many have called it President Joe Biden‘s “Ministry of Truth.” While commenting on the new DHS board, which will be led by Nina Jankowicz, McCain invoked the 2005 cult hit V for Vendetta, which starred Natalie Portman. “’Disinformation board’ is straight out of V for Vendetta and it should petrify every American,” McCain tweeted Friday. “Disinformation board” is straight out of V for Vendetta and it should petrify every American. — Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) April 29, 2022 If you haven’t seen the film, it takes place in a futuristic Great Britain that is run by an authoritarian government....
    On Thursday, a small earthquake shook the media world. Hopefully, its shockwaves are felt far and wide. CNN announced that its much-hyped streaming service CNN+ was shutting down on April 30th, less than one month after its launch, completely wasting $300 million that was already spent on developing the service. You read that right, more than a quarter of a billion dollars blown. There were rumors since its launch and last week it came out that the service had possibly drawn less than 100,000 subscribers (and as many at 150,000), who were willing to pay $5.99 for a little extra Don Lemon in their lives. 100,000 subscribers is so low it's almost unfathomable when you consider that even CNN's struggling morning show managed to attract a weekly average of 446,000 viewers in April. Fox News' FOX & Friends was watched by an average of 1.4 million viewers. 100,000 subscribers is so bizarrely meager that you can understand why the new management at CNN (Warner Bros. Discovery) thought there was no better way to end this modern media Hindenburg than to simply cut...
    James Carville, the notorious and legendary Democratic political operative, infamously once said, 'It's the economy, stupid.' He coined the term in 1992 while he was advising President Bill Clinton during his successful run for the White House. Carville was trying to get through to Clinton's campaign staff. He wanted his team to communicate to the public that Clinton was focused on the issues that were most important to them – their bank accounts. Suggesting that your own staff is 'stupid' is one thing. Suggesting that the American people are 'stupid' is another -- and that seems to be President Joe Biden's approach. 'I'm doing everything within my power by executive orders to bring down the price and address the Putin price hike,' Biden told an audience in Iowa on Tuesday. 'Your family budget, your ability to fill up your tank, none of it should hinge on whether a dictator declares war and commits genocide half a world away.' The White House slogan may as well be 'It's Putin's fault, stupid.' And he's talking to you and me. Well the American...
    On Friday, April 1, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced that she is running for the U.S. House of Representatives seat once held by the late Rep. Don Young, who died on March 18 at 88 — and two days later, former President Donald Trump announced that he is endorsing her. Palin’s campaign for Alaska’s lone congressional seat comes at a time when far-right culture war politics and pseudo-populism are the norm in the Trumpified Republican Party, and her influence on the GOP is one of the things discussed in an early April article by Politico reporter David Siders. Trump, announcing his endorsement of Palin, wrote, “Sarah shocked many when she endorsed me very early in 2016, and we won big. Now it’s my turn!” NEW: Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and vice presidential candidate under Senator John McCain, is running for Congress.https://cbsn.ws/3J0rUp2 — CBS News (@CBS News) 1648860594 Thank you President Trump!

    The poll results are in. The award for stupidest and most incoherent slogan in American political history goes to… 'Defund the Police.' Congratulations Democrats! You remember 'Defund the police'? Of course, you do. How could you possibly forget? It is right up there with John Kerry's infamous 'I voted for it, before I voted against it,' which is credited in no small part to putting the nail in the coffin of his extremely forgettable 2004 run for president. To be honest, the first time I heard 'Defund the Police,' I didn't understand what it meant. But that's because no one really did. Some said it meant 're-envisioning the police' while others said, yes, literally it means we don't want a police force to exist anymore. It was kind of like political astrology. People read into it whatever they wanted and Democrats were always too clever by half when they discussed the issue. Even after a veto-proof majority of the Minneapolis City Council pledged to defund and dismantle the police department in June 2020, Democrats refused to take a clear position....
    It is no secret to anyone that I am not a fan of President Donald Trump. So, this may surprise some readers to hear me take this position: I am calling on the most famous podcaster in the world, Joe Rogan to interview the most controversial president in modern history. Now let's be clear, I felt that during the four years that Trump was president, whatever ideological or legislative accomplishments he achieved, were outweighed by his unleashing of mental, emotional, and physical chaos that wreaked havoc all over our country in various forms. One of the tragedies of that time is that if Trump could have curbed any of his maniacal impulses, even a little bit, he might still be president. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden's approval ratings continue to slide and Vice President Kamala Harris continues to give nonsensical speeches during which she sounds more like a high schooler caught giving a report for which she hasn't prepared, than one of the most powerful women in the world. All of this presents Republicans with a golden opportunity to retake the...
    The art of modern political communication is all about 'signaling.' 'Signaling' your message as an elected official, party or administration to the public establishes what your philosophical mandate is, who you want to hear it and how you plan to address the biggest issues facing your constituents. Great politicians do this well. I would point to Presidents Clinton, Obama, and Trump as masters at this, while President George W. Bush was -- and President Biden is -- abjectly more clumsy and less sophisticated.  The signals that Biden sends shows he is more concerned with his legacy as an ultra-progressive figure and not as a uniter. It is incredible that a politician who built his good reputation on experiencing pain and guiding others through it seems to completely underestimate how much the country is struggling with inflation, gas costs, rising crime and the frightening likelihood of entering another war. But it was truly shocking to see the Biden administration's latest pathetic attempt at signaling, at such a critical time in the history of America and the world. Last week, the White...
    Lindsey Graham on Wednesday reiterated his call for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be assassinated despite criticism from both Democrats and Republicans for pushing the drastic step.  'Yeah, I hope he'll be taken out, one way or another. I don't care how they take him out. I don't care if we send him to the Hague and try him, I just want him to go,' Graham said of the Russian president. And the Republican senator from South Carolina said he wants the Russian people to do it.  'Vladimir Putin is not a legitimate leader, he is a war criminal. He needs to be dealt with by the Russian people,' he said.   He also said his late friend, the well-respected Senator John McCain, who died in 2018, would agree with him.  'If John McCain were here, he'd be saying the same thing, I think,' said Graham. 'It's time for him to go. He's a war criminal. I wish somebody had taken Hitler out in the [1930s].'  Senator Lindsey Graham reiterated his call for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be assassinated Sen....
    Getty Meghan McCain and Erika Jayne. Fans blasted Meghan McCain for tweeting her support for Erika Jayne during the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” reunion. On Sunday, March 13, 2022, the political columnist and TV personality tweeted about the RHOSLC reunion and it caused a bit of a stir with Housewives fans. Here’s what you need to know:Meghan McCain Called Fan Reactions to Sharrieff Shah ‘Obvious Patriarchy & Sexism’ Compared to Fan Reactions to Erika Jayne I think it’s a really important question @Andy posed to Sharrieff – why hasn’t he been dragged through the mud like @erikajayne has?

    If you have a famous last name, or notable parents, it is both a blessing and a burden. It is a burden because everyone assumes every single thing in your life is handed to you. You are not extended ownership or agency over your life's accomplishments (or failures for that matter) because everything is always credited to your privileged upbringing - despite the fact that my father hasn't been living for over three years. It is also a favorite pastime of the lowest common denominator on the internet to impersonate me by screaming 'my father' over and over again. It is hurtful, but as the old saying goes, there's no crying in baseball. MCCAIN: 'Kim is an incredibly smart woman, I would never say different. But she should really know better' More obviously, being born into privilege is a blessing. Doors are opened for you, opportunities are handed to you, and overall more attention is given to you as you start your career (particularly if it is the same career path as your parents). If you don't believe me feel...
    In the world of pop culture, the Kardashians are the undefeated queens.  They are the first family of reality television, and for the past 15 years have reigned over everyone else in their space.  For better or for worse, they are media and marketing geniuses, who have made it their life's mission to include us in every single iota of their lives.  Events as small as Kim's daughter North buying a hamster and as big as arrests, marriages, divorces, and births have been broadcast for the world to witness.  They recently ended their E! show and have moved on to Hulu with what appears to be basically the exact same show just on a different streaming service.  I have met Kim several times, and true to her reputation, she is the consummate professional and incredibly pleasant and friendly.  Even backstage and at industry events, she will take every selfie and engage in every conversation.  Sadly, I cannot say the same for most of the mega-celebrities whom I have encountered during my time working in the media.  I don't love what...
    Months after her exit from The View, DailyMail.com columnist Meghan McCain is still being targeted with hurtful jabs from Joy Behar. McCain, 37, hit back at Behar, 79, on Monday after Joy went out of her way to troll Meghan's affectionate Valentine's Day post to her husband Ben. Slamming her former colleague on The View, Meghan shared a screen shot of Joy's comment - which had been deleted - and branded Joy 'pathetic.' Spat: Meghan McCain, 37, hit back at Joy Behar, 79, on Monday after Joy went out of her way to troll Meghan's affectionate Valentine's Day post to her husband Ben 'Happy Valentines Day Ben ⁦@bdomenech⁩ - I love you and am grateful every day for the life we have together,' read Meghan's original tweet. Along with the post, the blonde commentator shared a sweet photo with her husband. It's pretty common place for couples to share loved up photos and posts on social media every February 14th so McCain's post was certainly not out of the ordinary.

    When I found out the Super Bowl was being held in Los Angeles my first thought was: What are they going to do about their mask mandates?  California's now infamously draconian Covid restrictions, led by one of the figureheads of the lockdown hysteria, Governor Gavin Newsom, have prompted push back and protest across the state. Many blue states, such as California and New York, have become embodiments of the most extreme measures put into place in our country.  Both states have seen a mass exodus of citizens fleeing for the freedom of red states. Now in many cases, while liberal governors and local officials have moved to relax some Covid rules, they've continued to double down on others.  California officials announced on Monday that they're keeping school mask mandates in place for at least two more weeks, even after indoor mask requirements for vaccinated adults were lifted. These latest changes come despite the fact that over, and over, and over again science has shown children to be the least likely to be impacted by Covid-19. It's only the adults who...
    John McCain knew he was taking a gamble when he picked a relatively unknown governor from Alaska to be his 2008 running mate, according to a new book that claims he said, 'F*** it. Let's do it,' when he plumped for Sarah Palin. To emphasize the point he mimed making a dice roll in a conversation with a top campaign strategist. At the time, the decision was dressed up as a bold choice that would excite the Religious Right.  In hindsight, the choice of a gun-toting controversialist from Alaska with little experience on the national scene was an act of political desperation that turned a four-point lead for the Arizona senator into a seven-point defeat.  McCain knew it was a risk but went for it anyway, according to a new account told by New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters in his forthcoming book, 'Insurgency: How Republicans Lost Their Party and Got Everything They Ever Wanted.' The conversation took place in August 2008 on McCain's ranch, according to Axios, which published extracts and confirmed the account.  Sen. John McCain picked...
    In the six months since I left The View, I haven't watched a single episode of the show.  My life has moved on. Between this column and other projects and above all a toddler, who is the most demanding and adorable diva in my life. The other day she insisted on having her bunny rabbit shoes and wouldn't take no for an answer; see I just don't have the time for my old friends on the show. Nonetheless, when something goes viral from the show or ends up in the publications that I read I can't help but feel a twinge of disappointment. It's not that I expect compelling or nuanced political discussions from daytime television, but it's sad to see the recent litany of embarrassing moments from a show I invested so much time and effort in trying to elevate to a more serious level. The notorious disaster of the non-interview with Vice President Kamala Harris was the most prominent incident, until yesterday, when my old co-host Whoopi Goldberg engaged in a series of bizarre, incoherent, and even dangerous...
